Magdalenefjorden from the series Mine
Video Documentation of Site Specific Intervention

During the fall of 2014 I completed a series of mining digs across the international territory of Svalbard, situated inside the Arctic Circle. Using nothing but my body I attempt to extract resources from locations throughout the Arctic that have previously been, or are currently under discussion as, potential resource extraction or processing sites. At each location I dug for a long as my body and patience would permit.
